Artful Evening: Image Meets Text: A Legendary Poetry Workshop

September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The exhibition Legendary: New Perspectives on the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Collection invites visitors to view much-loved pieces from the KIA’s collection in fresh ways, often drawing unexpected connections between very different works of art. In keeping with this concept, educational programming throughout the run of the exhibition will offer guests opportunities to engage with the visual arts through other artistic media. 

In this workshop, led by celebrated local poet, visual artist, and educator Denise Miller, participants will explore different approaches to the process of writing poems inspired by works of visual art. They will then select pieces from the Legendary exhibition and formulate poetic responses, with the option to share their work with the group in a gallery walkthrough. No prior experience with poetic writing is required, and beginners are very welcome!
